Bar'am forest

About a month ago, I visited Bar'am with my aunt and uncle when they were in town. We followed the map to get to the general area, and then followed the signs to what we thought was a hike that started at some ruins. We paid to get into the site and started walking around. There are ruins of at least 2 synagogues on site. There is also an old stone church, but it is still in use. At the time we visited, some sort of youth group was meeting there. We toured the synagogues and admired the old architecture, and then went looking for trails. As it turned out, this site was just the ruins. The trails start a few entrances up the road. We went on one of the trails and had a great view of the valley and some nearby farms.

This weekend, I went again. This time, I went on a different trail. Again, it was a great view. The forest provided a lot of cover, and it was a very nice walk.

Then, we went hiking at the Mt. Sne nature reserve. It was also a very nice hike and nice view. Here, they had signs indicating what a lot of the plants and things were, so if you want to get a bit educated on nature, it's a good place to go hiking.
